Journi to New Zealand


9 April 2018

First day at work 🤞🏻

8 April 2018

Sunday is for settling in and shopping. One of the things I love with moving is being able to start fresh with groceries and stocking up 😊 oh and exploring “new” grocery stores. So far I’ve been to New World, Countdown and Pak ‘N Save and the Warehouse for all non- grocery supplies!

After moving in it was time for a quick break and I decided to head to Riverton following a tip from Jeremy at Regent’s. It was a beautiful drive on the Southern Scenic Route with beautiful landscapes and sheep! I had lunch at The Aparima Restaurant and got the Blue Cod (also per Jeremy) it was delicious! I was too full for dessert but they all looked yummy too!
Jetlag is in full effect so that means COFFEE and breakfast. I decided to another cafe on my list: Zookeepers Cafe. Walking distance from Quest Hotel, and what a fun place. The whole place is so funky, you keep looking around for another interesting item. I had another cappuccino, this time with chocolate instead of cinnamon but I guess I should start asking for no topping 😅, and the Eggs in Toast (poached) simple but delicious!

Busy day today! Activate up bank account, walkthrough of the house, set up new NZ cellphone, sign the rental lease and meet some my coworkers at Venture Southland. Now I’m giving into the Jetlag and going to bed 😴
Signing the lease for my new home 🏡! Check out that cute sunroom!

First time Emirates in Economy Class!
The night before departure! I’m pretty much packed, will probably redo it tomorrow to make sure I don’t cross the weight limit of 30kgs. Tomorrow is leg 1 of 2, leaving from Düsseldorf to Dubai. Before traveling on to Christchurch the next day.
